with fake documents to get real passports and then come to the u.s. and a big part of the problem is that countries aren't sharing information with each other. part of this government accountability office report says "even when countries have terrorist screening information, they may not have reciprocal relationships to share such information or other traveler information such as passenger airline lists with other countries to limit the ability of preventing travel of known or suspected terrorists." even though a passport can't kill someone, it can help a bad guy get in position to do some serious damage. >> travel documents are the same as weapons to terrorists. they can't carry out their plots without them. with our partners, and again, some of that is out of our control. we're closer to a c. >> and this gao report deals heavily with the breakdown, basically in communication with other countries. here at home, though, we are not perfect because since november 2001, just a few weeks after 9/11, there have been 25,000 security breaches at u.s. airports. that's about seven a day a
